Israel: July 14, 2002


: 10.0pt"> Israeli warplanes and helicopters destroyed a building in Gaza that was seen as a meeting place for terrorists and used to manufacture explosives. The building was unoccupied at the time and there were no secondary explosions. Ten nearby civilians were wounded. This was in response to mortar attacks on nearby Jewish settlements the previous days. 

An attack on Gaza is apparently still in the works, but the Israelis appear to be taking their time so they can collect the maximum amount of intelligence on what the armed Palestinians groups in Gaza plan to do.
